    I stumbled on this on HBO yesterday and I was stunned at how well put together this Documentary is. It is truly a masterpiece. An amazing account into the Death of Dr. Martin Luther King on that fateful day in Memphis in 1968. This is the story of the man who was standing next to MLK when he was assassinated at the Lorraine Hotel. To listen to the man who spent that last hour with him and to listen to the conversation they shared was amazing. Rev. Kyle is an inspiring speaker and gives an incredible first person narrative. Kudos to Adam Pertofsky and Margaret Hyde. I Loved "Man on Wire" But I will be pulling for this Documentary to win the Oscar.
